Folliculitis, I got it!

But for today:
I have been bothered by a rash like problem on my fore arms for a couple months. I finally saw a Dermatologist. Ah ha, you are suffering from Folliculitis. Being interpreted, “I have developed infections in the hair follicles of the forearms.” It has never been painful, just an irritant. This doctor did not seem to agree with what my regular Doctor prescribed. So he gave me something else and more instructions on how to use it.
I was glad when my Doctor referred me to the Skin-man. I have had this little worrisome sore bump behind my left ear for a very long time. I told the Dr. about it and all of a sudden he was interested. He didn’t seem concerned about the arms. Using magnified glasses he asked if I would like that taken care of now ? Of course. So another lady entered my life. There must be a large amount of smart, pretty ladies who get into surgery. She ran Sherry out, she wanted to be alone with me.
This little lady worked long and hard, almost three minutes, injecting, freezing and cutting. She took the little sucker out. I know it is, at this very minute, being studied intently (I hope) for cancer cells. (She said)“I do not expect anything nasty, this is just precaution.” A likely story, I bet she tells all good looking men that! She also wanted my phone number and address and Sherry’s working hours. (Of course she said it was in case of an emergency!) Ah ha! I expect a call as soon as Sherry goes to work!
The procedure was a ‘Shave’. It looks like a very sharp instrument was used to ‘cup’ out the bothersome ‘spot’.
My first time in 79+ years someone wanted to do a ‘biopsy’. I am very glad it is not an ‘autopsy.’
Thanks for reading this ‘stuff’.
Ending on a funny:
MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: 'Why is he whispering in her mouth?'
